Spiralized Sweet Potato Parsnip Kugel

Inspiralized readers, meet Phoebe Lapine, the woman behind the wellness blog, Feed Me Phoebe.

Phoebe’s dishing up this Spiralized Sweet Potato Parsnip Kugel, just in time for fall-time deliciousness and the upcoming Jewish holidays like Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur!

But first, a bit more about Phoebe. Phoebe Lapine is a food and health writer, gluten-free chef, wellness personality, culinary instructor, and speaker, born and raised in New York City, where she continues to live and eat.

On her award-winning blog, Feed Me Phoebe, she shares recipes for healthy comfort food and insights about balanced lifestyle choices beyond what’s on your plate. Her forthcoming memoir, The Wellness Project, chronicles her journey with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and how she finally found the middle ground between health and hedonism by making one lifestyle change, one month at a time.

I read her book in just a week – it was an amazing and inspiring read. Phoebe has a way with words – and clearly, with food.

Ali says:
This looks amazing! How much coconut flour should be used? The measurement is showing up as a question mark for me. Thanks!
Meaghan says:
Thanks, Ali! The recipe has been updated. It's 1/3 cup!
Anna-Marie says:
I'm seeing 1/3 cup ❤️
Sarah says:
If you were just going to use regular flour how much would you use?
Meaghan says:
For every cup of all purpose flour, you only need 1/4-1/3 cup of coconut flour. We haven't tried this recipe with regular flour, but a cup should work.
Rosette says:
Can this be prepared ahead of time & frozen?
Carol says:
This recipe sounds great. Could I bake it in something other than cast iron?
Shirl Lundstrom says:
I'll be baking mine in a pampered chef stone ware dish. Stone ware also preheats like cast iron really nice.
Carol says:
Thanks for answering!
Lydia says:
Do you think this would work in a pie dish? Or do you think it has to be a dish that you preheat?
Meaghan says:
Yes, that should be fine!
Shirl Lundstrom says:
The Inspiralized cookbooks frequently showed other vegetables that could be substituted. Do you think rutabags would work in place of the sweet potatoes? I have plenty of them in the garden, along with parsnips and onions!
Meaghan says:
Yes, rutabagas, parsnips, and onions would all work well.
janet taube says:
Looks delicious. Is there a nutrition analysis? Thanks
Meaghan says:
No, there will not be nutritional information for these guest posts while Ali is on maternity leave!
Lois says:
I am allergic to coconut, can I use regular flour and should I adjust the measurement.Thanks
Anonymous says:
Me too! Would love to know this answer!
Meaghan says:
Yes! We haven't tried using regular flour, but adjust to using more regular flour as coconut flour is extremely absorbent and very little is needed.
Stephanie says:
One can also use matzoh crumbs (traditional) or breadcrumbs (not traditional) instead of flour.
Rosette Rutman Abrams says:
I have a brand new Cuisinart Attachment for my Stand Mixer that I am using for the first time. What is the equivalent to the "C" blade. I tried googling it but nothing comes up? Thanks So excited to be trying this!!!
Meaghan says:
We do not have a guide for your spiralizer. We just suggest doing your best to match the noodle shapes your spiralizer makes with the noodle shapes made by the Inspiralizer!
laura says:
Looks amazing. Any suggestions for egg substitutions?
Meaghan says:
You could try using a flax egg!
Marylin says:
Can this be made in advance and then frozen?
Marylin says:
Can this be made in advance, then frozen?

ramen is the perfect meal for this season of life. it’s cozy, comforting, filling, and satisfying. 🙏🏼 needless to say, I’ve been eating tons of ramen bowls lately, and I’m extra excited to share this one with you, a take on Japanese miso ramen: Miso Noodles with Smoky Tempeh (using @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh) and Kale. 🥬 🍜 #LightlifePartner⁣

this is kind of like two recipes in one, because this smoky tempeh is good on everything – in sandwiches, on salads, in grain bowls - it’s my go-to flavor when I’m making tempeh (especially for those who aren’t as far along on the tempeh train as I am.) the other recipe is the simplest miso ramen with kale, which you’ll be making over and over again. 👏🏼 also, you can simply sub in @lightlifefoods’ Smoky Tempeh product here, to save time!⁣

you can find @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh at @acmemarkets or @wholefoodsmarket, but use their Store Locator on their site to find out where it’s sold near you. 🛒⁣

recipe below 👇🏼👇🏼⁣

Miso Ramen with Smoky Tempeh and Kale⁣
Serves: 4⁣

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil⁣
8-ounce package @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh, cubed⁣
¼ cup soy sauce, low sodium⁣
2 tablespoons maple syrup⁣
¼ teaspoon smoked paprika⁣
1 teaspoon liquid smoke⁣
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder⁣
2 garlic cloves, minced⁣
1-inch knob ginger, minced⁣
4 cups vegetable broth⁣
1 tablespoon miso paste⁣
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce⁣
4 cups finely chopped kale⁣
12 ounces ramen noodles⁣

Heat half the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tempeh slices and cook for 5 minutes until browned, stirring frequently.⁣

While tempeh cooks, stir together ¼ cup of water, soy sauce, maple syrup, smoked paprika, liquid smoke, and garlic powder. Pour that over the cooked tempeh and stir to coat. Let cook another 5 minutes or until moisture is evaporated and tempeh is browned. Set aside on a parchment lined plate.⁣

Heat the remaining oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the broth and 2 cups of water and bring to a boil over high heat.

taco mondays are the new taco tuesdays! 🌮 but seriously... every day is a good day for a taco, right? 🥑⁣

the whole family loved these tonight, so I figured I'd share the recipe with you all! for so long, I over-thought fish tacos and now, I've got them down to a pretty easy science: slaw in an avocado sauce, a garnish, and pan seared cod. oh, and some quality corn tortillas, warmed in a skillet first (it makes such a difference!) 👇🏼⁣

cod fish tacos⁣
makes 9 tacos (3 servings) ⁣

ingredients ⁣
~ 1 ripe avocado⁣
~ 1 lime, juiced⁣
~ 1 small garlic clove, sliced⁣
~ 1 large handful cilantro⁣
~ salt and pepper⁣
~ 4 cups coleslaw mix ⁣
~ 9 corn tortillas ⁣
~ avocado oil ⁣
~ 3 boneless, skinless cod filets (about 3-ounces each) ⁣
~ 2/3 cup pineapple mango salsa (or similar) ⁣

in a food processor, place the avocado, lime, garlic, cilantro, 1/4 cup water, and season with salt and pepper and process until smooth. place the coleslaw in a large bowl and add the avocado crema and toss to coat. set aside.⁣

warm the tortillas in a large skillet and set aside, 3 on a plate. ⁣

add the oil to the skillet and once oil is hot, add the cod. cook for 5 minutes, flip, and cook another 5 minutes or until the cod flakes and is opaque. using a spatula, break the cod up into pieces. divide the cod onto the warmed tortillas. top with avocado slaw and mango salsa. serve.⁣
